Description
Full Text

The stm. KEWEENAW is not only fully equal to any craft ever put afloat on the lakes in point of construction, (and as such Detroit has just cause to be proud of her,) but she has also proved herself one of the fleetest of our "floating palaces." She arrived here yesterday from Lake Superior, and on the trip down she run from Detroit to Gratiot lighthouse in 16 hours and 8 minutes. This time has never been beaten, and probably will not be very soon.
